I wanted a place where I could share some “Easter eggs” about my books, so keep reading for some behind-the-scenes information!

Roads To Love

  • The cover photograph was taken by me, and is a diverging road where my aunt lived when I was growing up. Her son now lives in his grandparents’ home on that very road šŸ™‚
  • This book was originally written as part of National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), though since I was leaving to visit England and Wales, I completed it in just 15 of the 30 allocated days.
  • I have a file on my computer of different book ideas that I’ve come up with but haven’t managed to get to writing — each story, save for Liv’s, came from this file.
  • Most of my stories tend to come from the infrequent but vivid dreams I have at night, so I scramble to write everything down while I still remember it — this is exactly where Liv’s story came from just before starting NaNoWriMo 2014.
  • The messages from the dating sites in Lissy’s story? Those are all messages I’ve personally received. I actually have an idea for a nonfiction guide to online dating, and I’ve been saving the worst of the worst to use as examples in it. I thought it might be fun to put a couple into the book šŸ™‚
  • This one is more of a general Easter egg than just this book, but I like to give my lead characters names you can shorten into nicknames, probably because my real name is pretty difficult to get a nickname from! Only in the past year or two did I figure out what my real name’s nickname was — my first initial is B so I expanded it just slightly to Bee šŸ™‚ I always hated that I couldn’t get cute little name things, so I also tend to pick fairly “normal”/common names out of my own experiences!More to come when I think of them! šŸ™‚
